A LAWYER FOR TERESA
Epifanio’s plan is working. Allen, one of Camila’s customers, meets with her to ask about a cocaine shipment that never arrived. It gets worse: Eric, her direct competitor in Dallas, has approached Allen to offer him that he be his new drug provider. Camila is furious, so she calls Cesar to find out what’s happening, but Cesar pretends to know nothing.
SOMEWHERE IN TEXAS
Teresa is in a remote part of Texas, stuck in the cage where she just spent the night. There are other women like her all around, locked and at the mercy of Camila and her men. One of them, Evelyn, approaches Teresa and starts talking to her when, suddenly, the girl falls dead on the floor. Some men take her to a table, open her belly with a knife, and remove several packets of drugs out of her stomach. One of the packets dissolved inside and killed her. Teresa sees this horrible scene and tries to flee, but Camila’s men manage to catch her.
A STREET GIRL
Her name is Teresa Mendoza, a beautiful Mexican girl who exchanges dollars on the streets of Sinaloa. Years later the world will know her as the Queen of the South, but for now she is just a girl who can barely fend off an abusive boss.
